I have the MXR Distortion Plus, Boss SD-1, Boss OD-2, and even the Boss HM-2 (Heavy Metal pedal)to choose from, or I can get what I need if it's something else.

The earliest ones (for example 7/2/87 :twisted: ) will feature the MXR. By '89 (spring? summer? is forgotten to me already) JG had switched to the yellow Boss OD-1 and 2, assuming he would have used the 2.

I'm new to the forum and a HUGE GD fan. Saw this topic and wanted to share this with you all. It's AATWT Michael Hedges style. Definitely different but I find it to be a powerful interpretation of the classic Dylan song. Let me know what you all think.

This is me playing BTW
